Fight Gone Bad

The Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser was a BIG success this year with a great turn out of atheletes and spectators. It was nice seeing some familiar faces from the affiliate gyms and was even nicer meeting some new people. I had donated prior to the event and really wasn't planning on doing the workout, but everyone kept bugging me and after watching the first round, I couldn't resist. I just had to get all nice and sweaty! And believe me...I was sweaty...just like Cheryl and Maria, and Mary and Chris, and everyone else that was there! Oh so good.

The workout was set up as follows,

Move from each of the five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. This event calls for 3 rounds. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of ‘rotate,’ the athletes must move to next station immediately for a good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point. The stations are:

Wall-ball, 8 ft target (Reps) 12#
Deadlift high-pull (Reps) 53#
Box jump (Reps) 20"
Push-press (Reps) 53#
Row (Calories)

My score was 241..YAY All the bots had really close scores which was kinda we all have the same programming or something.

Oh, and a side note...Brad makes the most amazing cabbage salad, I had three LARGE servings of that stuff and I just cant get enough. MMMMMM

Hahaha..Cheryl likes my ass...GRAB

Time Trials And Leg HELL

Finally got around to my second attempt for the time trials. It was cool going to the nine O' clock class and watching Chris get his experience on! But it did have a few downfalls. I didn't have the usual robots pushing me so my time suffered for some of the events.

11:55 rx

9:46 rx

4:17 rx

400m Run

500m Row

It was nice getting it done early and then coming back to the gym to watch everyone else and cheering them on!

Alison RX'd her pull-ups and push-ups which was awesome!!! Watch girl, next time you are going to murder the time trials!!!

Bionic, Bicentennial lady, and Iron woman, you girls did awesome...I will never catch up...aaaaaaaaaaah!

Sorry that I didn't see any of you ladies today, I went to Frisco with a friend to get some yummy shrimp.

Today was Rubber Legs,

Complete the following for time:
  • Run 200m
  • 50 squats

  • Row 250m
  • 30 lunge steps
  • Run 200m

Its Been a Few Days

I really want to go to the city with some friends, dressed real spiffy, and just have fun at pier 39 lallygagging. There really isn't anything more special than being with people you care about and making the most out of something as simple as showing up to a place with no real plan other than to have a blast. Whose up for it? The more the merrier, the less the more romantic, aye Chris! he he

Anyways, its good to be at a computer with internet and really old pictures. So many memories.

Anyways, today at the gym....was...hell...

We had to do Kelly,

5 Rounds for time of

400m Run
30 Box Jumps 20"
30 Wall Balls 10#

Not fun

My overall time was 00:34:??
Mary will have to tell you the time, we tied and I was so dead I could only remember the 34.

Good job today Mary, you ate that WOD alive, and Maria you butchered it you RX'd fiend. That WOD kicked all our butts today. I hated wall balls before, but now I'd say that they are okay, my new hate is for box jumps! I herby declare them evil on all accounts of everything good in this cookies!

Deadlift 5/5/5/5/5

I'm so lucky to have a boyfriend that laughs when he falls hard! What a badass! Hope you did well on your finals and essays!

Today was deadlifts,

Five rounds of five reps,

Due to the crappiness of my form, Eric suggested I stick with 150# as not to ruin a good thing, or as they say in the CrossFit world, don't sacrifice form for weight. I'm happy with myself especially after all the coaching I got from both Chris and Eric. Next time I'll up the weight for sure.

Mary, Maria, I hope all is well with the family, I will pray for you guys!

Cheryl kicked ass on today's WOD, it was amazing watching her overcome those crazy weights!

I think I will work on my form for all of the basic movements. I plan to dedicate a little bit of time after every One World WOD to work on such techniques. Good Stuff.

Oh and Chris, you did wonderful teaching your first class, you got right in there and knocked us all dead. Great job babe, I am so proud of you.
